Topics Covered In This Video:
- Sculpey Souffleis a new line of Polymer Clay in 2014 from Polyform.
- Comes in 22 colors, at the time of this posting.
- Described as lightweight, exceptionally strong clay that doesn’t crack when used on large pieces.
- It has a suede-like matte finish that doesn’t need to be sanded.
- The clay is soft and reminded me of the old Studio by Sculpey polymer clay which is no longer manufactured.
- Same sized block as Premo Sculpey but weighs 15% less than Premo.
- Also available in Multi-Packs.
- Designer colors… not artist based pigments.
- When I mixed Mai Tai with the Bluestone 50/50 the colors mixed equally and appeared that the saturation levels (at least with those two others) are the same.
- Colors did not shift or change when baked.
- Matte finish that doesn’t need to be sanded.
- This product will sand and buff to a shiny finish, but there are tiny white specks in the clay that are visible on the sanded pieces.
- In a follow up video, I will do some strength testing.
- Souffle is an excellent substitute for the old tutorials that called for Studio by Sculpey Clay.
- Clay can be used for caning but it is a little soft, so it would be best suited for only simple cane designs.
- Bakes at 275F (130C) for 30 minutes. I think it will need to be baked for longer but I will have to do more testing to know the ideal temp and time for this clay.
- Forgot to mention in video: The clay has only a very faint smell similar to Premo and is very opaque in color.
- There is no Translucent Souffle in the lineup at this time.
